“Boardwalk Empire” alum Tim Van Patten will direct and executive produce the project.
Maslany, who starred for five seasons on BBC America’s “Orphan Black,” will play as Sister Alice. The character is described as “a rare sight – the leader of the Radiant Assembly of God, preaching three sermons a day (21 a week!) to a hungry congregation and a radio audience that spans the country. Entertainer, politician, God’s conduit to the City of Angels, Sister Alice wields great power when she speaks, and plans to use it in ways only she can know.”
